Find out what Seafood restaurants to try in Puerto Limon. Puerto Limón (Spanish pronunciation: [ˈpweɾto liˈmon]), commonly known as Limón (Spanish for "lemon"), is the capital city and main hub of Limón province, as well as of the cantón (county) of Limón in Costa Rica. It is the sixth-largest city in Costa Rica, with a population of over 55,000 (including surrounding towns), and is home of a multicultural community. Part of the community traces its roots to Italian, Jamaican and Chinese laborers who worked on a late nineteenth-century railroad project that connected San José to Puerto Limón. Until 1948, the Costa Rican government did not recognize Afro-Caribbean people as citizens and restricted their movement outside Limón province. As a result of this "travel ban", this Afro-Caribbean population became firmly established in the region, which influenced the decision to not move even after it was legally permitted. Nowadays, there is an important outflow of Limón natives who move to the country's Central Valley in search for better employment and education. The Afro-Caribbean community speaks Spanish and Limonese Creole, a creole of English.

International flavour, caribbean dishes, fresh fruits, amazing view
We stopped to have a late lunch at Cocori based on reviews that we had read here on TripAdvisor. The view is incredible with giant waves crashing onto the rocks directly in front of the seating area. The waiter seemed professional enough when he came to take our order and I thought we had made a good decision to eat there. A waitress brought our drinks out which made me wonder what happened to our waiter. We never saw him again. After about 30 minutes, the food was brought out by the same ambivalent waitress. She proceeded to put our plates down and walked away into the kitchen, not to be seen again. By this time I had finished my drink and wanted to order another but there was no wait staff in sight. The food was mediocre, at best. I had ordered a spicy Caribbean shrimp dish and got a dozen small shrimp in what amounted to ketchup with very little spice added. It came with French fries that were brown from being over-cooked and had sat so long they were room temperature. After we finished eating, I waited 10 minutes without seeing a member of the waitstaff, then went to the cash register to pay. An underwhelming lunch for myself, my wife, and our two daughters set me back $80. I would have felt ripped off if it had only been $25. I do not know of any other places to eat in Limon but I would not recommend that you waste your time at thisone

Visited here today for a late lunch and wished I hadn't! The service was pretty awful, no smile and little assistance. Our table had finished eating before others had even got their food. Very bland flavours on half of ours when it did arrive, and expensive for what it is. Would not recommend.
We were here in April for dinner. The service was good, the dining area was very lovely. After a few disappointing meat experiences at other places in town, Luisa's was fabulous. The steak was perfectly done. A generous portion of a very nice cut, it had amazing fresh vegetables with it. A glass bottle of coke finished it off perfectly. Two of us ate for about 25$ U.S. Amazing value.
We specialize in meat, seafood and snacks including Costa Rican Caribbean food, enjoyed in a cozy environment with sea view and private pool.
